ADDITIONAL TASK 03
for 9 servings
- good-quality chocolate, semi-sweet (225 g)
- butter, melted
- sugar (250 g)
- 2 eggs
- vanilla extract
- all-purpose flour (95 g)
- cocoa powder (30 g)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking dish with parchment paper.
- Chop the chocolate into chunks. Melt half of the chocolate in the microwave in 20-second intervals, saving the other half for later.
- In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer, then beat in the eggs and vanilla for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture becomes fluffy and light in color.
- Whisk in the melted chocolate (make sure it's not too hot or else the eggs will cook), then sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Fold to incorporate the dry ingredients, being careful not to overmix as this will cause the brownies to be more cake-like in texture.
- Fold in the chocolate chunks, then transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how fudgy you like your brownies, then cool completely.
- Slice, then serve with a nice cold glass of milk!

LIST OF NPC CONNECTIONS.
Christopher Edwards The Mayor: Bowie works closely with the Mayor to keep the town looking presentable and aesthetically pleasing. She is contracted to help out with the flower gardens, and help to decorate his reception with flowers. Along with creating floral arrangements for dinner parties etc.
Dr. Michael Ryan The Cultist: Bowie began seeing Dr. Michael Ryan right after her parents died in a tragic accident. Her mental health was in a terrible way and she was finding it hard to cope. He was her first point of call and he had some great ideas, although she always felt awkward in his presence, kind of unnerved. After four sessions with him she went travelling and when she returned she checked in with him. When he began talking about humanity and redemption Bowie felt even more awkward than she had before and stopped seeing him. When she then heard the news about what he'd done, she felt terrible. Maybe if she had said something to someone all those people wouldn't have been hurt, but then again what would she have said? She feels like she's had a lucky escape.Timothy Davidson The Serial Killer: Timothy knew Bowie's father which is how the two became familiar with each other. Her father and Timothy didn't have a good relationship and he always warned Bowie to stay away from him. She always thought him to be rather sinister, and he had a dark sense of humour. The kind of humour that seemed to reveal the soul of the person... and he most definitely had a dark soul. So growing up she always did her best to stay away from him, but as an adult it's much harder. Timothy also had some involvement in her parents death, but she doesn't know this. Bowie see's through his outward 'good citizen' appearance, but she will never truly know the person Timothy is.
Lara Donovan The Preachers Daughter: Bowie and Lara were best friends. Their families were close, and the two would spend a lot of time at each other's homes, and they'd have sleepovers. The two would hang out at Sunday school, and sit next to each other during church services. They were practically sisters. They remained friends into adulthood until Lara left town. Bowie was shocked to learn that her body had been found nailed to the church, she was appalled. She knew Lara to be a loving person, and couldn't imagine why anyone would wan't to kill her. It was a traumatic time for her.
Samantha Davidson The Runaway: Samantha Davidson came to Darling Buds looking for a part-time job, at the time Bowie wasn't hiring so turned her away. She didn't even give the girl a chance to beg for the job, or hand over her CV for her to look at. She just simply said no, then ignored her and carried on with her job. Bowie was familiar with her father, and wanted nothing to do with the family, as she wanted to keep her distance, due to her father's instructions. When rumours began spreading around town about her disappearance Bowie felt bad. She couldn't help but wonder if Samantha would still be in town if she'd given her the job.
Vincent Santero The Drug Lord: Bowie began trying drugs in order to relax her mind and forget about her depression and anxiety, and all the troubles she's been through. She often gets them from his dealers, but there are occasions where she will go to him at his Body Shop in order to get drugs directly from him. She doesn't get anything too strong, usually just weed. But she has been thinking about trying something a little stronger.
Mia Santero The Bent Cop: One night when Bowie was buying drugs from one of Vincent's 'helpers', she was busted by Mia. Mia recognized the drug pusher and then pulled Bowie aside. She said they could make a deal, since she was buying from her father. Bowie agreed, and gave Mia $2000 to not arrest her, and keep a clean record.Henry Tarron The Stalker: Henry becomes infatuated with Bowie and continuously sends her flowers. He leaves weird messages on the notes, and never reveals his name so Bowie had no idea who the flowers are coming from. She first felt it weird, but now she feels slightly threatened, but is too afraid to go to the police. She just tries to ignore the constant flowers and throws them in the trash whenever she gets them. Sometimes she feels like she is being followed, although she never actually sees anyone.Janice Stewart The Twisted Therapist: Bowie has been seeing Janice for about three months now. It took her a while to open up to her, as Bowie finds it difficult to trust new people, especially those in power. She finally began to trust her and told her about her drug taking, and how she made a deal with a cop and paid a sum of money to stay out of jail and keep a clean record. A month after revealing this, Janice began blackmailing Bowie. Bowie must pay her $500 each month so it will not look suspicious on her bank statements, in order for Janice to keep her secret and not ruin her reputation.
Cooper Stanton- The Sheriff: Cooper has been a family friend for a very long time, Bowie has always called him Uncle despite there being no blood relation. It is purely because of how close he has been to the family, and he has watched her grow up. After her parents died Cooper was a big support of Bowie. Whenever she is going through a rough patch she knows she can go to her 'fake uncle' for advice and help.
